‘Teen Mom 2’ premieres tonight (Jan. 11), and it seems like there’s a new Amber Portwood in town — troubled 19-year-old, Jenelle Evans!
Can the Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans even be considered a teen mom anymore? The 19-year-old, best-known for her partying ways while starring on 16 and Pregnant, has been arrested twice and is no longer legally entitled to her son! HollyBaby.com has learned that Jenelle signed over “primary legal custody and primary physical custody” of her 16-month-old son, Jace, to her mom, Barbara Evans on June 10.
The stipulations of the custody agreement read: “The plaintiff [Barbara] is the maternal grandparent of the minor child. She is currently exercising physical control of the minor child by the consent of the defendants [Jenelle and her baby daddy Andrew Lewis, 25].”
Teen Mom or Teen Mom Train Wreck previously reported that Barbara Evans held temporary custody of Jace back in June. This custody agreement came just in time, as Jenelle soon proved that she’s not fit to care for Jace. As HollyBaby.com has previously reported, Jenelle has been arrested since the June 10 custody agreement. On Oct. 15, she was booked and charged with breaking and entering, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia (the first hearing for her trial is set for Jan. 10).
Just a month after her run-in with the law, Jenelle was involuntarily committed to Brunswick Community Hospital by her mom, Barbara. The police incident report indicated that “she was found not to be a threat to herself or anyone else” and Jenelle was released early the next morning.
Given Jenelle’s long history of arrests (she was also arrested for trespassing, but the charge was dismissed) and her continuous troubles (she ran away from home in 2008), the court ruled that she couldn’t handle the responsibilities of being a mother. And it’s believed that baby daddy Andrew has no involvement in his son’s life, apart from paying child support.
